We have received quite a few ArtFil yarns in many colours… you just have to come and see for yourself!
Camello is the most recent “Select” yarn from Rowan, which means that it will only be available for this year’s Fall / Winter season. It is composed of 68% Merino, 18% Camel and 14% Nylon, knits to a gauge of 28 stitches per 10cm and contains 175 meters per ball. As a bonus the patterns are free with purchase of the yarn.
My order of “Belle” by ArtFil has finally arrived. We have over 20 colours and 1 colour exclusive to Wool N’Things. It is great for socks because it contains nylon, but this merino/nylon fingering yarn can be used to knit anything you wish!
ArtFil is based in Laval, Quebec. They use an Eco-friendly method of dyeing yarn by using 80% less water and 60% less energy than the traditional dyeing method.

What do you get when you combine an addiClick Turbo set with an addiClick Long Tip Rocket set? An addiClick Mixed Set, of course! Bringing you the best of both worlds, the addiClick Mixed set contains a single Turbo tip and a single Long Rocket tip, allowing users to truly customize their knitting experience. Each set contains 8 Click tips (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, and 8.0mm), one each of 24”, 32”, and 40” pliable blue nylon addiSOS cords, and a skacel needle gauge, all packed conveniently in a beautiful portable yellow Click case.
ADDI CLICK OLIVE WOOD NEEDLE SET
Created from the wood of non-fruit bearing olive trees, each tip of the addiClick Olive Wood Set is finished with a plant-based oil to protect its unique look. The needles are quiet and comfortable to work with, as all tips and grips attain body temperature quickly – making them a great choice for arthritic hands.
The addiClick Olive Wood Set provides 8 different sizes of addi Olive Wood tips (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, and 8.0mm), three different lengths of the new, extremely pliable addiSOS cords (24”, 32” and 40”), and one connector piece which helps to either store stitches or combine your cords. The Click tips require no tools to change; simply insert the cord deep into the tip, twist and release. The tips will remain secure until you change them!
Wool N’ Things will soon have a demo set of this kit. Some stores were lucky enough to obtain a few kits during the test phase, but hopefully the kits will be available to all stores soon!
